Republicans on the House Oversight Committee have asked President Barack Obama's current and former top healthcare advisers to testify on the rocky rollout of Obamacare, but the White House has so far not agreed to the idea. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the committee, and Jim Jordan, who chairs one of its subcommittees, asked the White House to allow Jeanne Lambrew, a senior White House official responsible for healthcare policy, to appear at a November 20 hearing. Kathryn Ruemmler, Obama's counsel, told the lawmakers in a letter that the administration had already provided an "extraordinary" amount of information about the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.
